Promoting hydrogen as an energycarrier in Sweden
Hydrogen can become a new, efficient and environmentally friendly energy carrier. It can be produced from a number of energy sources and with different processing technologies. Major industries in Europe support the development of hydrogen for transport, aiming to replace fossil fuels with sustainable alternatives. This is a process of development and one way to progress is through demonstration projects.
Hydrogen Sweden is a Public Private Partnership with members and financiers from industry, NGO’s and local, regional and national government. The PPP was founded in January 2007 and promotes a balanced and pragmatic approach to hydrogen. Hydrogen Sweden is non-profit, includes circa 50 members at the moment. These are our members and financiers.
Hydrogen Sweden’s mission is to facilitate the introduction of hydrogen as an energy carrier in Sweden. To do so we initiate demonstration projects, disseminate information and strengthen the collaboration between actors from various fields with a joint interest in hydrogen. We are also open to exploring synergies with other alternative fuels and technologies.
